An analysis of three architectural housing types in Cornaredo, a town on the suburbs of Milan where Alberti lives. The three models are considered from both a structural and a social point of view. The aesthetics of these houses shape, in fact, the urban fabric of the area in a kind of standardization which also homogenizes the mode of living. The perfect geometry of the painted architectures is set in contrast to the size of the base modeled with cellulose pulp. The use of a natural and raw material allowed the investigation to remain within an artisanal and intimate boundary.
